Time’s Up!

Jagged bolts of lightning slamming forcefully into the ground

Rolling thunder hidden within overcast skies producing hideous sound

Sheets of rain cascading down in a burst of unrelenting fury

Lashing down impartially upon every building, automobile, and tree.


Standing by a huge window, within the confines of a concrete tower

Venky stared intently awestruck by Mother Nature’s raw power

Singing an elegiac song with accompanying strums of melancholy

Rendering him rooted to the spot even though he wanted to desperately flee.


Memories came flooding in as his eyes unwittingly welled up

Heartbreak could wait as he heard his boss shout, “times up!”
